I held two car rentals for our upcoming trip. One with Avis and the other with National. Avis was a little bit cheaper but as an Emerald Club member I love picking out my own car. And Daughter really, really loved to pick out the cars. She loves flying into Orlando and then pacing that row of cars to pick out the perfect one! (Its always black and sporty looking.) So I was trying to figure out if there was an aisle to pick from in Charleston airport or if you are assigned a car. I found my answer! Looks like National will assign me a car, bummer…
Emerald Club members:
- Simply reserve a Midsize car at participating locations in the U.S. or Canada.
- When you arrive at the location, go directly to the Aisle or Executive areas.
- Choose any car – any size, color, make or model – and only pay the reserved Midsize rate. The keys are in the cars.
List of locations is subject to change without notice. Emerald Club and its services require a signed Master Rental Agreement on file.

So I am pretty sure now I am going to go with Avis, its about twenty dollars less and since the cars are assigned anyway it is all the same. That is twenty dollars we can use for lunch or ice cream on our trip. But I will keep checking the prices prior to our trip when I have time.
